style: Istanbul is perhaps the most "normal" track in this bunch. Only 1 of the above measurements is more then 1 standard deviation removed from the median — the 22 space longest straight is the longest among these tracks. The first sector thins the track 3-wide along the front straight, through a basic 3-wide corner, the 2-wide section then continues for a short run to a tricky corner #2, then a short run puts the cars into the mid-field section. Sector 2 includes the 3 very fast corners on the track back to back to back before exiting out onto the long back straight. The 3-wide, 22 space long straight ends in a 2-corner combination seperated by a 1-space straight. The slow, 2-wide corners include overlapping arrows and dump the drivers back onto the front straight. This track does not really have a slow, tight in-field section and always feels like you need to stretch for 1 or 2 more spaces to line up the next corner. The last 2 corners are brutal after the long straight.

notes: Pretty normal from a corner design stand-point — just a couple increasing radius corners at corners 2 and 6.
